“New Requirements of EEDI & SEEMP”

EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) & SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan)

The Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) 62nd meeting took place from July 11th to 15th at
the IMO headquarters in London. The meeting largely focussed on Reduction of Greenhouse Gases (GHG)
from ships which led to the adoption of “Energy Efficiency Regulations” as part of a new Chapter 4 of MARPOL
Annex VI. These include Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) and Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan

EEDI reflects the amount of CO2 generated per tonne-mile (cargo carrying capacity). It constitutes a uniform
approach to calculation of a ship’s energy efficiency during the design and build of new ships and will be
used to control CO2 levels emitted for future new ships by encouraging improvements in ship design.

SEEMP establishes a mechanism for operators to improve the energy efficiency of ships through the
management of individual efficiency measures.
Date of entry into force will be 1st January 2013. The SEEMP will be applicable to all ships greater than 400GT
whilst the EEDI will only apply to new ships, excluding those with diesel-electric, steam turbine or hybrid
propulsion systems, as follows:
• Ship for which the building contract is placed on or after 1st January 2013;
• In the absence of a building contract, the keel is either laid or which is at a similar stage of construction, on
or after 1st July 2013;
• The delivery of the ship is on or after 1st July 2015.

“DNV and GL to merge”

Hamburg/Oslo, 20. December 2012: An agreement has been signed to merge DNV and GL. The new entity will be called DNV GL Group. It will be one of the world’s leading ship classification societies and risk experts in the oil and gas, renewable energy and power sectors, and among the global top three within management system certification.

“The merger rests on a strong strategic rationale, and responds to challenges of increased globalisation, rapid technological change and the need for sustainable development. Our customers will benefit from an increased service offering and global competence base as well as one of the densest networks,” says DNV’s Group CEO, Henrik O. Madsen, who will be the CEO of the combined new company. “The merger with DNV supports our long-term goal of being recognized as one of the most respected technical assurance and advisory companies in the world”, adds GL Group CEO, Erik van der Noordaa.

By combining the two international organisations, the new company will be one of the world’s leading independent technical service providers with state-of-the-art technological expertise and strong capabilities for innovation. With more than 17.000 employees and an extensive global network of offices, DNV GL Group is positioned to meet increased international competition and even better serve the needs of the customers.

The DNV Foundation will hold 63.5 %, while GL’s owner Mayfair SE will hold 36.5 % of the shares. The new company, with a combined turnover of some EUR 2.5 billion, will be headquartered and registered in Norway.

“We see this as a good strategic match. The two companies have a common set of values and complementary strengths. Both have strong brands and solid market positions as well as a reputation for high quality and strong integrity. There were negotiations between DNV and GL both in 1999/2000 and in 2006 about closer cooperation. I am very pleased that timing now seems to be right,” says Leif-Arne Langøy, the Chairman of DNV’s Board of Directors.

“DNV is the partner of choice for GL. Besides DNV’s clear commitment to Hamburg our decision for this partnership is based on the complementary fit of DNV and GL as well as the joint ambition for innovation and quality of both companies. As a long-term oriented shareholder we consider this partnership to be the continuation of our successful investment in Germanischer Lloyd,” says Guenter Herz, Chairman of Mayfair SE.

DNV GL Group will strengthen its foothold in several areas of expertise, including the maritime segment and across the entire oil & gas value chains. The Group will be one of the global leaders in pipeline verification and asset integrity services as well as in renewable energy certification and advisory services. Moreover, it will be a strong player within power transmission and distribution as well as testing and certification services. To enhance its service offering the DNV GL Group will strengthen its focus on R&D and innovation.

DNV GL Group will operate in the business segments Maritime, Oil & Gas, Energy and Business Assurance. Its global headquarters will be at Høvik outside of Oslo.

The maritime business unit will be headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, while maintaining its commitment to the Norwegian maritime cluster. Oil & Gas will be headquartered at Høvik, Norway, while Energy will be headquartered in Arnhem, the Netherlands and Business Assurance in Milan, Italy. DNV GL Group will be organised as a Norwegian limited company (AS). The transaction requires approval from competition authorities.
